Empirical Computation of Collisional Ionization Rates of Atoms and Ions by Electrons
A two-parameter empirical formula is proposed to compute the electron collisional ionization cross sections for atoms and ions. An interpolation formula is given to compute one of the parameters when experimental information is missing, and the corresponding ionization rate is computed.
